Those of you who are familiar with 29 avenue Rapp will be pleased to know that the building's ornate façade has recently been given a toilettage.  The sensual Art Nouveau edifice built in 1900-1901 is the work of architect Jules Lavirotte, and is an easy-to-find Parisian must-see just off the Pont de l'Alma. Incontournable.  The unidentified artist, incidentally, was sketching a view of the Eiffel Tower.
un toilettage:  a grooming, a tidying up
incontournable:  uncontestable, inescapable, a must
une properté éclatante:  spanking clean
